I know it's unfashionable among my set, but I am grateful to live in a monarchy. Her grace, hard work, intelligence and resilience regularly inspire me, and I have seen moments of her excellent sense of humour that make me believe her home life is, in the main, a thing of joy.

And so say we all.

Imagine had some of our heads of government (e.g., the current one) been head of state. Shudder.

Re: And so say we all.

Imagine if her cool head had not been around to inject some perspective, distance and sanity into some issues. Would that she had felt comfortable to intervene a little more! One of the few things I liked about Blair in the end was the depth of his respect for HM's political mind.
